ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING

INDEPENDENCE OF JUDGEMENT

At the end of the Roman History course (LT), students will have acquired the ability to present clearly non-specialist contents related to the main events and issues of the history of Rome, verbally and/or in writing.
The Roman History course (LT) should provide students with the methodological tools and learning abilities required for the continuation of studies and/or for non-specialist professional activities.
